  • Free Studebaker 289 engine.

    I'm not sure this is the right place for this but I have a 1962 Studebaker engine if anyone wants it. I traded a guy some Studebaker parts for it back in the mid-90's. I had to disassemble it to carry it home and still have most of the parts. The engine was kept in a dry shed where it is now. I don't know what the condition was when it was removed from the car. Here are some numbers: Engine casting # 535601 VIN# P88639. Cylinder heads # 535976 Crankshaft # 557424 Camshaft # 534131. The heads have the complete rockers and valve assembly intact. No manifolds, valve covers,pan,water pump etc. The pistons and connecting rod and caps are numbered in a separate box. The bad news is I don't have the main caps, lifters or pushrods. I know the main caps are very important but I don't have them. If you are interested let me know. I live in Northern New Jersey and you can come and pickup this stuff.

    Sounds like it would be a good engine for someone to part out, since the block is close to useless without the Main Caps.
    It is a 1962 Studebaker 289 Engine, most likely from a GT Hawk or Lark Cruiser.

    The Heads however, are from a Supercharged '57 Golden Hawk or a Truck with Low compression 7.0 or 7.5 to 1 Comp.

    The Crank is a 1557424 289 c.i.d.

      Thanks StudeRich, If the block is useless I'll take it to the local scrap iron dealer. I'll probably get around $10 or $15 bucks for it. How about the crank, heads and camshaft, would they still be useful to someone?

        I would be good for someone that wants to build a 4 bolt main block.

          Your block could be of use to someone who has an engine with a cracked block. They could use your block with their caps, and have a machine shop line bore them.

            Definitely YES! They certainly could be of use to someone close enough to pick them up or afford the shipping.
            The Camshaft re-grinders are needing Cores, and the Crank may be turnable etc.

            If it has flat top pistons this could have been a "Performance Build" with the High Compression Flat Top Pistons, but Low comp. Heads for a Supercharger.

              The piston are dished. I have all the pistons matched with the connecting rod caps.

                Best question no one asked is it a full flow block? late 62 also if not then best to scrap it. I just pulled a 289 engine with problems from a 64 cruiser and the block number is PM308 how can this be? the M is 13th letter and only 12 months in a year.

                  They intentionally skipped capital letter "I" since it could look like a numeral 1. M is December, so noted in the engine code section of the '59 - '64 Chassis Parts Catalog.

                    I'm always buying 289" engines just to get the cranks. If this wasn't on the wrong coast, I'd have it in the truck now.
